- Exo Greek Mediterranean Restaurant is not a gyro shop. It’s a comfortable bistro that serves fine Greek cuisine and wine in a very pleasant setting, right in the heart of Whitestone. – Queens Gazette
- The food was excellent and the service was extremely welcoming. It was like we went to our family's place for dinner. We tried a little of a bunch of dishes all of which were super TASTY. – Samina Q., Yelp, 2/19/11
